General riding & Motocross applications

These recommendations  are a guide only as fork Springs are weight and speed dependent. For example a 72 kg Pro rider falls into the 0.88kg/mm category but may well be better suited to a 0.92kg spring due to the much higher corner entry speed and the ability to hit large bumps at high speeds. Please note this guide is for rider weight ‘without’ gear.

Please note we have had great results using one spring down for Veteran/ C level riders on the 450 machines.  Eg. 90kg rider running a 0.96kg/mm spring for a plusher ride.

For more accurate advice please consult your local suspension tech or send us an email.

 Rider weight Spring Recommendation ( Pro Level riders may consider one rate harder than recommended due to the faster speed and need for 'hold up')
